Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
As I'm sure many of you can relate, when a new gadget is released I get the urge to buy it. And the Ipad 2 is no exception.
To be fair I have been mulling over getting an Ipad/Tablet for some time, specially since I think such a machine would be awesome to have in my coming trip to Comic Con. I'm still debating getting one though.
I mainly use my 4 year old macbook for the usual web browsing/ watching videos/ fb, etc. Nothing huge, nothing very demanding, though I have noticed it starting to chug, and the battery life is dead on it. So I think an Ipad could replace it's main functions without me having to sacrifice much.
The main worry I have is typing on the thing. Usually I use my macbook on my bed, chair, both times it resting on my lap. I don't do hardcore typing but I do the usual messaging, blog comments and post and of course PA forum. How reliable is it to type on the thing in those postures?
